Introduction

Hi,

My name is Jody and I have 15months sober.

1st Posting to the Public Group

Hi everyone, my name is Wendy and I am an Alcoholic.  At this moment I have 175 days sober.

Amazing

A sober life is truly amazing.

Confused

I don't understand this website very well. It says to get the worksheets you have to go to the public forum? What happens if you want to work the steps but you don't know where to get them?

My addiction

Step Number: 
Topic: 
Powerlessness
Question: 
Custom question

#1)I am powerless over people, places and things. 

1) people: anyone but me, and what I do.

2) places: I have no power over places...

3) things: like my addiction to meth and Oxycottin.

WHOO HOO!

So glad I found this place. I am looking forward to gaining comradery with like minded folks who are actively working on the 12 steps in order to over come their addiction with food. I am a new member of Overeaters Anonymous. I am working on step one. I am hoping to find others that are doing the same.

 

PEACE!

Opiates vs Methadone

The disease of addiction
Question: 
Has my disease been active recently? In what way?

I use heroin. I've tried to cold turkey it and went through hell. I always ended up using. I've been cutting back on heroin and raising my methadone. Isn't methadone a drug as well?

Courage to Change - August 8

In Step Six I contemplate my life undergoing change-tremendous change. The great fear is this: If I shed many characteristics that stand in my way, what will be left? It is as though I face a great void, a terrifying unknown. Yet when I acknowledge how far I have come, I can see how much I want to change. The desire to grow and to heal has brought me to this uncomfortable point, because I am tried of the way I have been. My Higher Power is there to guide me when I am ready.
